Christmas Flower Orders Available thru Dec. 2

Help us decorate the sanctuary for Christmas

One of the things that makes Christmas... well, Christmas... is a sanctuary decorated with poinsettias in honor of our Lord's birth. You can help us decorate the sanctuary by ordering flowers in honor of a special person or occasion, in memory of a loved one, or simply to the glory of God. (The dedication will be printed in our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day bulletins.) You can then take your flower home and enjoy it after our Christmas Day service. 
Use the form in the Sunday bulletin or the form below to place your order. Payment can be dropped off to the church office (if you ask nicely, the elders might be persuaded to collect them and make sure they're passed along, as well.)
The deadline is December 2, which will be here before you know it!


Commemoration of Faithful Departed on Nov. 4

nullWe will be observing All Saints's Day on Sunday, November 4. Part of that observance is the Commemoration of the Faithful Departed, in which we remember by name those who have died in the faith during the past year. If you have a loved one who is not a member of St. Paul who died under the faith since November 1, 2017, we would gladly include them in our commemoration. Please submit their names to the church office by October 24. 

Greeting Cards Available in Our Book Nook

Did you know that you can pick up individual or boxed Christian greeting cards the next time you’re at churchnull? Stop by our Book Nook in the basement to see the selection that we have on hand. 

Cards are sold at cost— all proceeds go to purchase additional cards.

Assistance Available from Our Food Pantry

One of the main activities of our Care & Share group is operating a food pantry that helps both our membersnull and people from the community. If you know of anyone in need of food (again, they do NOT have to be members of St. Paul), please call Tracey Reinbold in the church office at 674-8681, Carol Butterfield, or Karen Hahn. Names will remain anonymous.  

Church Basement Re-Opening

nullAfter the dedicated work of several of our members over the course of several months, our basement is repaired. To recognize them for their hard work and to celebrate the use of the space once again, we're having a reception after church this Sunday, August 26. Please help us thank them and celebrate the great job that they did. 

Prospective Member Class Meeting

(Edit 8/29/18) Update after Sunday’s meeting: Based on the specific individuals who have committed to the class at this point, it will work best for Pastor Stolarczyk to arrange to meet individually with them. If you are interested, there is still a chance to take part. There are a couple of different approaches that can be used, depending upon your background and family circumstances. Please call, email, or text Pastor Stolarczyk by Tuesday, September 4. 

Interested in learning more about what Lutherans believe? We'll soon start a class for prospective members. During this 8 week class, we'll dig into God's Word using Luther's Small Catechism. At the end of the classes, those who are able to join themselves to our public confession of faith will be invited to join St. Paul as a communicant member.

The big question is when we'll meet. Pastor Stolarczyk would like to have a brief meeting to figure that out on Sunday, August 26, from 10:15 - 10:30 a.m. (yes, only 15 minutes). Please use the form below to indicate your interest in taking part, especially if you won't be able to be there on August 26. 


Community Harvest Blessing Service Aug. 26


St. Paul is hosting the second annual Community Harvest Blessing Service. It will be held at the pavilion at the Unionville Village Park on August 26 at 3:00 p.m. Everyone in our community is invited as we pray for God’s blessing upon this year’s harvest and for His protection for all who labor to gather what He has provided.
Non-perishable food items will be collected and will go to St. Paul’s Care & Share committee to help provide emergency assistance to those in need.
